It’s an unfortunate day for mullet lovers everywhere. The world lost a good one.
Wisconsin senior linebacker Vince Biegel recently got his notorious and majestic flow trimmed, giving the Badgers star a new, and almost unrecognizable, look.

Biegel, who was considered the heart and soul of the Wisconsin defense in the 2016 season, saw his mullet reach peak notoriety as the senior recorded three sacks, five tackles for loss and 25 total tackles. He even came back from a foot injury in late September, which was initially supposed to keep him out indefinitely but only sidelined him for four games.
Biegel’s famous mullet even reached the ranks of high school football, where younger players were copying the Badgers linebacker’s look, furthering the legend of his mullet.

Biegel’s shave comes in advance of the linebacker graduating from Wisconsin, after which he may find himself either in the NFL — CBS Sports rates him as the 10th best outside linebacker prospect — or preparing for job interviews, where mullets aren’t usually considered a part of regular business attire.
@VinceBiegel RIP King Mullet. "All business in the front and All…. wait, more business in the back"?
